lady gaga – alejandro

I love Lady Gaga more and more. The styling, the fashion, the sets, the choreography, the dancing, the dancers, the music, the directing, the editing… STUNNING!

Watch Alejandro now here!

The artist behind my favourite game of all time, Cranium, has amazing depth in his illustrations, and as far as I can see, a cult following. His work is often subversive, but never outright gross. If I had a list of my favourite artists, Baseman will be right on top! Below’s some of his work from his Hide & Seek collection.

This is a super duper idea, where designer Carnovsky printed three different images in Red, Green and Blue on wallpapers and covered a space with it. Together, they form a mish mash of patterns and images, but switch on only one set of lights and you get to enjoy the set of images one by one.

Tokujin Yoshioka has just completed a stunning project for the Swarovski Crystal Palace which is simply a big round crystal ball. The brilliance is in the beautiful refracted light it produces, filling the room with sparkles. Beside is showcase of the chandelier growing in a glass vat. Conceptual and pretty works always gets to me.

evol: mini concrete block towers

leave a comment »

Sweet. Please come to Singapore!

“Urban spaces that host sparse enclaves or nondescript architecture are more likely to spark feelings of banality rather than inspiration. So when we spotted the work of Berlin based street artist EVOL , we were brought to our knees (literally!) by the awesome sight of a transformation of electric boxes, small planters and other geometric city forms into teeny tiny soviet-style concrete block towers — a clever reminder of the social failures of Modernism and its ugly legacy in cold concrete tower-block architecture.”

See more EVOL. Speak more EVOL. Hear more EVOL.
